One of the few things I've cooked with an *actual recipe* that I liked enough to make more than once:

 

 

Creamy Orzo

 

Recipe courtesy of: Giada De Laurentiis
Show: Everyday Italian
Episode: Cook with your Kids

 

Total Time: 25 min
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 15 min
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Level: Easy

 

 

 

Creamy Orzo

 

 

Ingredients:
1 pound orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, juices drained
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

 

Directions:
Bring a heavy large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic, and saute until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook until they are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in the cream and peas. Add the orzo and toss to coat. Remove the skillet from the heat. Add the Parmesan to the pasta mixture and toss to coat. Stir the pasta mixture until the sauce coats the pasta thickly, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to maintain a creamy consistency. Season the orzo with salt and pepper, and serve.

Pic I happened to have on my phone of a modified version of the above recipe I made around March...without following the recipe Smiley Tongue I happened to have chicken, orzo, parm, and frozen peas & carrots at the time, so I made this:

(Note: Because orzo is a small, rice-sized pasta, it fills a bowl at a pretty high density. I would *not* recommend filling your bowl this much...LOL I only got through about 1/3 of it at once!)

Are you sure you did not eat the entire bowl..I usually find folks who take the time to say they did not really did..lol

Definitely not at once! I remember putting the rest (it made 2 more servings) in the fridge for later, and I even mentioned how it defeated me to @D-Nitrate , who requested the pic in the first place. It's like...y'know how when you go to Olive Garden and they serve the pasta in those wide, flat bowls and you feel like you eat and eat forever and it still looks like you've barely touched it? Orzo is like that.

 

Okay, let's stop this, it feels weird having an actual conversation with you Smiley Tongue

ok lets stop..lol. Thanks for clearing the pasta question. Sorry you feel strange chatting with me..perhaps clean your mouth off next time we speak and you wont feel so out of bounds..lol pasta can be messy after eating it. Eating an entire bowl can do that..
